Diaz enjoyed a breakout 2016 campaign with the Cardinals (133 wRC+ in 460 plate appearances) and was seemingly entrenched as the club's everyday shortstop heading in the 2017 season. Unfortunately, Diaz struggled to find his footing in the early going and was ultimately demoted to Triple-A Memphis in late June after slashing just .260/.293/.396 over the season's first three months. The shortstop's walk rate was cut in half -- from 8.9 percent in 2016 to 4.3 percent -- and he watched his power numbers plummet as well. Diaz's hard-hit rate fell eight percentage points in his second big-league season and his ISO dropped from .210 to .133. He continued to struggle at Triple-A (77 wRC+ in 187 plate appearances) while Paul DeJong took full advantage of his opportunity as the team's starting shortstop. The Cards shipped Diaz out to Toronto in the offseason, which is a big positive for Diaz given the injury histories of the two middle-infielders in front of him (Troy Tulowitzki and Devon Travis).

  2. Aledmys Diaz 2017 Preseason Outlook
    It's a shame that Diaz missed over a month courtesy of a fractured thumb, as St. Louis' under-the-radar rookie was in the midst of a phenomenal debut season. Despite dealing with the thumb injury, he still finished the year with an outstanding .300/.369/.510 line to go with 17 home runs and 65 RBI. Unfortunately, his defensive display was subpar and led to a .961 fielding percentage and 2.7 WAR. Diaz is fully expected to keep the title of starting shortstop, and with better health, should blow past his total of 111 games from a year ago. Prospective owners will want to be aware of the inherent risk that follows Diaz; due to him entering the league with little pedigree, the danger that he regresses during his sophomore season is more prevalent than with more proven prospects. However, if he continues to produce at a rate close to that from 2016, Diaz should finish inside the top 15 at the position.
  3. Aledmys Diaz 2016 Preseason Outlook
    The 25-year-old middle infielder had a breakout campaign in 2015, slashing .264/.324/.421 with 10 homers and six steals in 102 games at Double-A, following that up with some ridiculous numbers in a brief stop at Triple-A and in the Arizona Fall League. Realistically he is more batting average than anything else, and the power and speed totals would likely both be in the single digits over a full season in the big leagues. He will start the year at Triple-A, but if Ruben Tejada struggles while Jhonny Peralta is sidelined in the first half, Diaz could be the next man up.
  4. Aledmys Diaz 2015 Preseason Outlook
    Diaz was signed last year after defecting from Cuba where he hit .308/.401/.444 across five seasons in Cuba's Serie Nacional. He battled injuries for much of the season, which was no surprise since he had not played any organized baseball for over a year after defecting. Diaz still managed to put up some fairly impressive numbers for Double-A Springfield posting a .291/.311/.453 line. He will probably spend the majority of 2015 in Triple-A and at age 24 is still young enough that he holds some promise. Right now he doesn't project to be much more than a marginal MLB player if he can make it that far, and with Jhonny Peralta coming off a very good season in 2014 it's unlikely the Cardinals will need Diaz to contribute in St. Louis any time soon.
  5. Aledmys Diaz 2014 Preseason Outlook
    Diaz was a shortstop with a well-rounded skill set in Cuba's professional league, and could quickly be in the majors after signing. That event will be delayed; he was barred from signing with an MLB team until Feb. 19, 2014 for presenting a false date of birth when he applied to become a free agent after defecting. Diaz hit .315/.404/.500 with 12 home runs in 270 at-bats during the 2011-12 season before he defected, according to CBS Sports. It's not clear if his glove is strong enough to stick at shortstop, so he may need to move to second base.
  6. Aledmys Diaz 2013 Preseason Outlook
    Diaz is a Cuban defector who played for Cuba in the 2010 Pan-American games. He's seen as nearly ready for the majors, but it's not clear how his bat will translate to MLB play.
